We also discussed other ways of communication and the reasons they were created.

Students had a blast trying out each one!
After reading and practicing each alphabet, we decided to have a little fun and create one of our own! Our alphabet had a little less utility than the other examples, but students had fun brainstorming what kind of alphabet we wanted to create. Students identified words that Minnesotans could use to communicate. A Minnesota Alphabet! Each student picked a letter and a word that had Minnesota meaning, often the things that Minnesota is known for. (Cold weather, hockey, cities, sports teams and so forth) Students used PicCollage to demonstrate their Minnesota letter. We put together our posters to create our own Minnesota Alphabet book!
